A Child Learns...

Hi Fiya-love,
I am posting this one for me and Dad more than for you. We want to be reminded how special you are and how much we need God's wisdom in raising you. If a child lives with fear and love for Jesus, she will learn self-restraint, she will learn to forgo heartaches, she will love her parents (for this is right!), she will pray and meditate on God's word day and night. *_*

Every morning when we wake up and before we retire at night, the three of us (Dad, Mom and Fiya) will hold hands and pray to God for good health, long life, protection for our family and our extended family. We intend to keep this as our tradition - to pray and stand in the gap for those who need prayers.

I am sharing to you what is written below - and I will keep that as a reminder. I love you Fiya-love. I am soo thankful to God for granting our prayers ( to have you). We've been dreaming about you for 11 years. You can see your name in the cards and letters that Dad and I exchanged years ago.

Let us always hold each other's arms love. I love you and Daddy-love.


A Child Learns

If a child lives with criticism,
he learns to condemn.
If a child lives with hostility,
he learns to fight.
If a child lives with ridicule,
he learns to be shy.
If a child lives with shame,
he learns to feel guilty.
If a child lives with tolerance,
he learns to be patient.
If a child lives with encouragement,
he learns confidence.
If a child lives with praise,
he learns to appreciate.
If a child lives with fairness,
he learns justice.
If a child lives with security,
he learns to have faith.
If a child lives with approval,
he learns to like himself.
If a child lives with acceptance, and friendship,
he learns to find love in the world.

Angel Mom!

Dear Fiya,

Today I got this from my work email circulation. I thought i would want you to read this when you are good enough at reading. *_* I love you sweet! Happy Mother's Day to me because I have you. I always thank the Lord for your life.

Love, Mommy
A baby asked God, “They tell me you are sending me to earth tomorrow, but how am I going to live there being so small and helpless?”
“Your angel will be waiting for you and will take care of you.”
The child further inquired, “But tell me, here in heaven I don’t have to do anything but sing and smile to be happy.”
God said, “Your angel will sing for you and will also smile for you. And you will feel your angel’s love and be very happy.”
Again the child asked, “And how am I going to be able to understand when people talk to me if I don’t know the language?”
God said, “Your angel will tell you the most beautiful and sweet words you will ever hear, and with much patience and care, your angel will teach you how to speak.”
“And what am I going to do when I want to talk to you?”
God said, “Your angel will place your hands together and will teach you how to pray.”
“Who will protect me?”
God said, “Your angel will defend you even if it means risking it’s life.”
“But I will always be sad because I will not see you anymore.”
God said, “Your angel will always talk to you about Me and will teach you the way to come back to Me, even though I will always be next to you.”
At that moment there was much peace in Heaven, but voices from Earth could be heard and the child hurriedly asked, “God, if I am to leave now, please tell me my angel’s name.”
“You will simply call her, ‘Mom.’”
